i think one of the reasons why obama went after these high profile things, like air travel and white house tours is because he wanted to try to prove that we just couldn't live without big government. but the irony now is that with the sequester has shown is yes, we can, in fact, live without big government and big spending and secondly, that government is completely screwed up at all levels. they can't set appropriate priorities. there is no common sense in government at all. >> well, look, i don't disagree that we have big problems with our government. we need to rein in spending, taxes, entitlement. we just can't afford big government or bad government. but monica, i think it's actually something a little worse. if i can be so bold. i think the obama administration thought that the sequester would be blamed on the republicans, more pain, more problems for the republicans. it's actually, according to the polls, backfired on the administration and that's why i think there has been some movement towards accommodation from the president and the white house towards reaching a deal. bot
